The Washington Commanders and owner Daniel Snyder are in the midst of a very troubling investigation into some of Snyder's behavior. After already being fined $10 million in July for workplace violations, now claims of sexual harassment hang over the franchise.

Speaking at the NFL's annual owners meeting Tuesday, commissioner Roger Goodell spoke on Snyder and the Commanders. Telling media members "Daniel Snyder 'has not been involved in day-to-day operations' of the Commanders." And, "that will continue for at least the foreseeable future."

Snyder once again finds himself in hot water. Over the past couple months, Washington and the NFL had continued to point point fingers at each other. But, so far, nothing has come out in regards to the investigation. Snyder has denied that allegations, most recently involving a former Commanders cheerleader that was made back in February.

Some have even called for the team to be sold from Daniel Snyder's ownership. Though according to Goodell, the 57-year-old hasn't and will not be involved in operations for the time being.

The NFL is also investigating claims made by former Dolphins head coach Brian Flores against owner Stephen Ross; who allegedly attempted to incentivize Flores to lose games for a higher draft pick.
